The Batman 0

The Batman

Turns out the world needed another Batman movie.  Who knew.  This time it’s (naturally) a bit grittier than the previous ones.  I enjoyed the home-grown sensibility of some of the costumes & gear, and...

Jungle Cruise 0

Jungle Cruise

This film features opportunities for The Rock to stand in a jungle looking pissed off wearing a khaki shirt. Plenty-silly treasure caper, which whilst predictable (or at least, trope-heavy) was still a good fun...

Nobody 0

Nobody

This kicked arse.  I’d read some review excerpts with Odenkirk, but in no way paid enough attention to any of the stuff going on at the time to get a bead on what this...

Baywatch (Extended cut) 0

No Time to Die 0

No Time to Die

And then they went to a glamorous place, to find someone. Then there was loads of shooting, and they found the name of someone else, so they went to another glamorous place to find...

Mission: Impossible – Fallout 0

Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Bond For Workgroups 7.0 or something, right?  I didn’t remember exactly what the last of the M:I franchise I saw was although I do recall wondering when they dropped from quasi-decent action/thrillers into complete...
